Spam

Spam is a series of portraits generated by a deep-learning algorithm upon which quotations from various artificial intelligences are superimposed. These passages, collected from films, books, comics, songs, and other types of fiction, appear as if written by hand, a second algorithm imitating human scripture.

All of these portraits, printed on magnets, form a collection of phrases, words, exclamations, and questions which are organized based on the game of Go. The spatial configuration is precisely that of the notorious last round, lost by the Korean, world champion Lee Sedol, against Alpha Go, the first AI to beat a human champion at Go. Only the stones of the victorious AI are represented.
